I live in Northern Wisconsin with my Boston Terrier and Chicago spouse. I’ve published short stories, poetry, newspaper articles and academic papers and have worked in nearly every profession from restaurants to retail to open-water diving and now write m/m romance out of my fascination with love, courage and gend

I’m a city girl. Really. The very last thing I wanted was to end up living in a small town far from civilization. But here I am. Sometimes I chafe at the isolation and often I regret the lack of diversity in places to eat, things to do, people to meet. On the other hand, my cave-like existence gives me more time to write. And my non-human neighbors are spectacular.


A reminder for when I wonder...

“I grimaced. “I’ve never done that before.”

He smiled. “They all say that. But if it’s true, we’re even. I’ve never kissed a trick.”

I rested my arms on the rickety table between us. He looked pale, and there were dark circles under his eyes. “I want to know why. You’re brilliant, one of the best students I’ve ever had. Why are you…?”

“Sucking dick for dollars?” His mouth twisted into a cynical smile.
